Short Description
The modern-day, hypertension, volume control, mineral bone disorder and metabolic disorders are central drivers of combined chronic kidney disease (CKD) and cardiovascular disease (CVD). As renal function declines, there are a host of abnormalities that develop, including changes in coagulation, fibrinolysis, lipids, endothelial dysfunction, homocysteine, anemia, calcium/phosphorus balance, and many other factors that have been related to CVD. Cardiovascular disease was considered separately because: (1) cardiovascular disease events are more common than kidney failure in patients with chronic kidney disease; (2) cardiovascular disease in patients with chronic kidney disease is treatable and potentially preventable; and (3) chronic kidney disease appears to be a risk factor for cardiovascular disease. By bringing together the best experts on the subjects nephrologists to pass on their knowledge and experience to provide the most important goal of this course.
